Women with coronary heart disease should not be ignored

Modern women, in-service field while at the same time strive to be a good wife, good mother, and therefore should have a healthy heart. Unfortunately, the current women with coronary heart disease health education is far from enough, leading to coronary heart disease has become the primary killer of women's health!

In 2007 the heart of Europe will publish the latest research shows that women with coronary heart disease mortality was significantly higher than men. Traditional view was that the incidence in women than in men 10 years later, myocardial infarction, approximately 10-15 years. Now gender trends in coronary heart disease are getting younger, especially those associated with smoking, essential hypertension, diabetes, hyperlipidemia and other risk factors in patients with early age at onset of more obvious. Survey shows that American women 45 years of age with heart disease every year 9000 people annually.

Clinical symptoms of coronary heart disease for women than a lot of the typical male. Abnormal fatigue is often an important precursor of coronary heart disease for women. For acute coronary syndrome, male patients often complaining of chest pain, and for many women with symptoms of back pain and sweat. Male patients with acute myocardial infarction to squeeze many of the performance of chest pain, women are the main v. shortness of breath, extreme fatigue, with or without typical chest pain, including the abdomen, neck and shoulder pain and nausea. Senior citizens and women with a history of diabetes occurred in asymptomatic myocardial infarction than men. In addition, women with coronary heart disease than men more vulnerable to the impact of seasonal changes, increased incidence of autumn and winter, complications and mortality than men.

Postmenopausal women, often autonomic dysfunction, easy to interfere with the diagnosis of women with coronary heart disease, leading to missed diagnosis, early treatment of the time delay. Correct diagnosis of myocardial infarction in women with 40% less than men.

In addition to traditional risk factors, the lower socio-economic status and work pressure will increase the number of women with coronary heart disease risk. In addition, the women through the sport increased high-density lipoprotein cholesterol and lose weight the effect of significantly better than men, menopause is an independent risk factor.

Prognosis of coronary heart disease in women and men have the distinction. Women with unstable angina better prognosis than men. And transmural myocardial infarction, although the incidence of women than men, but a poor prognosis. If ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction, women are more vulnerable to congestive heart failure, bleeding and paroxysmal atrial fibrillation, malignant ventricular arrhythmia, and even complications such as ventricular rupture.

This shows that women suffering from coronary heart disease is more dangerous than men, so more should pay attention to a healthy lifestyle. Once diagnosed, treatment should be actively medication, when patients with acute coronary syndrome, etc., in the absence of contraindications as early as possible under the premise of the purposes of percutaneous coronary intervention.

I think that women have had the same heart issues as men all these years, it's just that more studies were done on men, while doctors told women it was their nerves and proceeded to give them meds for that instead. Women have different symptoms from men. I speak from experience...thanks for bringing this issue to the forefront! Enjoyed the article.
